Iowa S Nico Law transfers after weekend arrest

Iowa safety Nico Law has left the football team after he was charged with disorderly conduct over the weekend.

Law announced the decision on Facebook on Wednesday and after his announcement, the school followed up on it with a release of its own.

"Nico has decided to transfer from the University of Iowa and complete his athletic and academic careers elsewhere," Ferentz said. "We wish him the best with his decision."

Law, a senior in 2014, was expected to be in line for a significant role. He pled guilty to the charge and paid a fine of $195. If he transfers to an FBS program, he has a redshirt year available.

He had 44 career tackles at Iowa.

According to HawkeyeReport.com, Law's decision to transfer leaves Iowa thin at safety. John Lowdermilk and Jordan Lomax are in line to be the starters, but after that, the backup jobs are up for grabs. Anthony Gair is listed as the top reserve at both safety spots and after him, two walk-ons are listed on the depth chart.
